[Verse 1]

Well, I don't know why I came here tonight

I got the feeling that something ain't right

I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair

And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs

[Chorus]

Clowns to the left of me

Jokers to the right

Here I am

Stuck in the middle with you


[Verse 2]

Yes, I'm stuck in the middle with you

And I'm wondering what it is I should do

It's so hard to keep this smile from my face

Losing control, yeah, I'm all over the place

[Chorus]

Clowns to the left of me

Jokers to the right

Here I am

Stuck in the middle with you


[Post-Chorus]

Well, you started out with nothing

And you're proud that you're a self-made man

And your friends, they all come crawling

Slap you on the back and say

Please

Please

[Verse 3]

Trying to make some sense of it all

But I can see it makes no sense at all

Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor?

'Cause I don't think that I can take anymore

[Chorus]

Clowns to the left of me

Jokers to the right

Here I am

Stuck in the middle with you

[Post-Chorus]

And you started out with nothing

And you're proud that you're a self-made man

And your friends, they all come crawling

Slap you on the back and say

Please

Please

[Verse 4]

Yeah I don't know why I came here tonight

I got the feeling that something ain't right

I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair

And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs

[Chorus]

Clowns to the left of me

Jokers to the right

Here I am

Stuck in the middle with you

[Outro]

Yes, I'm stuck in the middle with you

Stuck in the middle with you

Here I am

Stuck in the middle with you

Traitors to the left of me

Traightors to the right

Here I am,

Stuck in the middle with you
